We have been eagerly awaiting the airing of the College of Engineering video for the “Informed” series— an award-winning program that highlights stories and innovative concepts through documentaries on topics such as business, medicine, education, environmental issues. Be watching this month, especially if you live in the in the cities of Albuquerque, El Paso, Amarillo, Phoenix and Tucson. The NMSU engineering piece will air during Peak (7 a.m.-11:45 a.m.) and Prime (6 p.m.-11:45 p.m.) time on the CNN, CNN Headline News, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, Fox Business Network, TLC and Discovery between  Feb. 19 and Feb. 28.  Following that, it will be distributed to 200 plus Public Television affiliates across the nation.
